Hypothyroidism – An Underactive Thyroid

Article by Harry

As a Personal Trainer I have come across many clients who have suffered from hypothyroidism and as a result just dont seem to be able to control the weight they keep putting on. I have wrote this article to tell you a little bit about the condition and what you can do if you’re suffering from the condition. I hope you find it useful.

Hypothyroidism is when you have a reduced level of thyroxine. Having this reduced level of thyroxine can cause tiredness, weight gain, dry skin, aches and pains, lifeless hair, feeling cold and constipation.

The thyroxine hormone is made in the thyroid gland in the neck and is carried around in the blood stream. Thyroxine helps are bodys keep our metabolism working at its correct pace, as well as keeping many cells and tissues functioning correctly.

When you have hypothyroidism and your thyroid gland is not producing enough thyroxine, often called an underactive thyroid, this causes many body functions to slow down.

As the levels of thyroxine reduce further over months and years the symptoms named above can get worse and if untreated can cause.


Blame the meat industry for your man boobs

Article by Jeff Hamilton

The ScoopYou must be wondering where the hell did these man boobs really come from? I just want to shine light on some interesting facts. I hold a strong opinion that certain meats in the food industry can contribute to your man boobs. You can make your own call after reading this.Meat! Meat! Meat!Most of us in North America love our meat. A nice tasty steak on the grill seasoned to perfection will make your mouth water. Everywhere you turn there is a tasty burger, steak, taco; you name it and you can eat it. What most of us don’t realize is that a large portion of the meat industry uses hormones, in especially young livestock to increase the growth of animals in a short period of time. Guess what? You could be eating those same animals on a daily basis.Certain meats can kill your mojo!!Your man boobs can be caused by hormonal balances where more estrogen is being produced than testosterone. We as guys want the “mojo” not “nojo”


Solve for X: David Berry on efficient nutrition production

Solve for X is a forum to encourage and amplify technology-based moonshot thinking and teamwork. G+ The cow is, to put it mildly, not the most efficient mechanism to turn basic ingredients like CO2, water, and sunlight into calories and nutrition. Soy beans are better, but it is still an extremely inefficient process. What if we could skip many of the intermediate steps and directly convert the basic components of food into calories and nutrition. Such a solution would leap us forward by more than an order of magnitude in our ability to feed the world. David Berry is a Partner at Flagship Ventures and CEO of Essentient. David has MD & PhD degrees and has founded several life science and sustainability ventures.

Cooking Tips: Kitchen Setup

Article by Claudeen

Setting up your kitchen with the proper flow makes cooking easier and it helps keep your cooking area better sanitized. Here are some tips on how you can keep a proper flow in the cooking area in your kitchen.

1. There are really two parts to your cooking area. Your prep area and your plating area. If you’re right handed, your prep area should be to your left. Its the other way around if you’re left handed. You want it this way because you’ll be spend most of your time in the prep area, and stirring in the skillet on the other side.

2. You never wanna leave your knife out or in a drawer. Always use a knife block. This makes it safer and easier to keep all of your knives organized.

3. Always keep to cutting baords. One meats and one for vegtables. Also, use a wooden cutting board. Do this because studies have shown that wooden cutting boards help kill bacteria and not store it like glass or plastic.

4. Keep you salt, olive oil, and pepper in the prep area. This helps save time. Keeping your can-opener in the prep area helps save time also.

5. Having a trash can nearby is helpful too. This helps keep the prep area clean.

6. Your seasonings and vinegars should stay right above your prep area. Never keep them over the stove because the heat will dry them out and they’ll lose flavor.

7. Now on the other side you’ll have your plating area. Keep your plates in the cabinet right above.

8. Keep your cooking utensils in the plating area as well. Do this because you never wanna grease to splatter on your cooking utensils, making them unsanitary.

This proper format will make it easier to cook and and keep your cooking area clean at the same time.Cooking is easy as long as you know how to followdirections.As you learn more and more recipes, you remember how to cook them. Its really that easy. For example to make regular eggs scrambled, sunny side up, over easy it doesn’t matter, all you have to do is grease up your pan with margarine, set the stove to medium, put your eggs in the pan, and let it cook all aroound. Now to make an omelette, all you’re doing is mixing your eggs with whatever you want to put in them and cook it the same way you would make regular eggs. See its that easy. Now the problem that most people have is that they know how to make certain dishes. All they really have to do is find a recipe or cookbook and follow directions. So people don’t learn how to cook they just follow and remember directions well. All you have to do is find a great cookbook.
